Critic Reviews for Riot on Sunset Strip

All Critics (2)

By 1967, the campiness inherent to youth-runs-wild exploitation cinema had gained a rough edge; Mimsy Farmer's acid freakout dance here may be more Lola Falana than Timothy Leary, but it leads to her gang rape.

Audience Reviews for Riot on Sunset Strip

Any film with the Chocolate Watchband is my kinda film. A far out, great almost documentary of the summer of love in 1967

[img][/img] Who knew acid trips can turn into interpretive dance? Aldo Ray stars as a police chief trying to keep a fine line between the old fogeys & the peace loving freakniks, all the while, his daughter hangs with the wrong crowd. Funny as hell juvi film with everyone over the top. Fogeys & Freakniks. This was supposed to be "ripped from the headlines", but I don't know anyone who took acid & turned into Twila Twerp. The whole acid scene was bad really. I give it a 5. Why? I definiatly would love to get the soundtrack for my collection. That's what saved it.
